In Budget 2008, the Government of Canada committed to developing a new federal framework for Aboriginal economic development. A new federal framework would provide long-term strategic direction for actions in support of Aboriginal economic development. The Government also committed to work with Aboriginal peoples and other stakeholders in the development of this new framework. Without a doubt, youth input is critical to the New Federal Framework for Aboriginal Economic Development in order to start a basis for sustainability including Canada's largest Aboriginal population - our youth. Economic development opportunities and awareness are crucial for Aboriginal people to fully succeed in Canadian society. As such, the National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC) was engaged to hold a national Aboriginal youth engagement session.
